Has been AMAZING…..You’re probably really confused as to the point of this post right now. Don’t worry, I will explain.
Almost 2 years ago, my ex fiance proposed. I was excited, but things just didn’t feel quite right. Our relationship was one big rollorcoaster and we definitely needed to work on some things before getting married. The proposal, the ring, nothing felt “right”. And after having explosive arguments with my ex about the wedding plans (among other non-related issues), I finally quit planning for the wedding and instead focused on our relationship. To make a long story short, a month before our wedding, I called it off. It was the hardest thing that I’ve ever had to do, but there was a nagging voice inside of me that wouldn’t go away…..and I finally accepted that it wasn’t “just” cold feet. I was scared of what the future might hold, but I felt that this was a test of my faith. We all say trust in God, but do we really act accordingly?
Two months later, I literally can not remember the last time I’ve been this happy. I found a fabulous apartment, have been spending tons of quality time with friends, have been getting hit on by some sexy eligible bachelors (which is a huge boost to the ego I might add) and even been on some amazing dates with a few of those sexy bachelors….. and I’m doing all of the things that I’ve been wanting to do, but couldn’t because of one reason or another.
And now, I want to tell the hive thank you. Thank you for helping me wedding plan. Thank you for helping me analyze my relationship drama. Thank you bees for being open and honest about your lives and allowing me to learn from you. This is my way of giving back. To help other bees who may need a bit of encourgament to make a difficult decision. To let you know that there is life after a broken engagment. Hopefully none of you have to experience this, but to those of you who do, it can feel lonely and I want you to know that you will survive.
I hold the “hive” in a very special place in my heart and I can’t wait to come back and share my future engagement (to whoever that might be) with the bees. I even still look at the recaps and all the photos, filled with excitement for the girls who are getting married and looking forward to the day when my prince charming arrives as well.

getting over a broken engagement was the hardest thing I ever had to do!!! But life does get better! And when you doubt yourself, if you’re ever lonely, just remember that you made the choice for a good reason and you knew he wasn’t the one! Because if you are happy now, then you made the right choice!

Thank you everyone! I wanted to write this to help other girls who may be struggling with this issue and are scared. I know I was. And I also wanted to write this to say thank you for all the support I receive. Part of my healing came from the bees and all of their great advice. I wouldn’t be in the place I am now if it were not for all of the help I received from you ladies!!!

Congrats!! I didn’t break an engagement, but I did break up with a very serious boyfriend about a year and a half ago… and I am now engaged to someone else and so much happier now than I even knew I could be.
Good for you and for me too! 🙂 I wish more women would take the step we took.

I am so happy for you that you are feeling so good. And that euphoric feeling tells you that you absolutely made the right decision! I have broken up with a very serious boyfriend (after 6 years!!), and within a week, the feeling of relief far outweighed all the tears I had cried. Your gut is telling you that everything’s going to be alright!

Thank you again ladies! More importantly, thank you for sharing your stories as well. I think our happy endings may give strength and courage to other women. It’s also nice to see that many of you, after ending a serious relationship or engagement, went on to find your prince charming. I know he was worth the wait!
